Baby Back Ribs in the Oven

  There's nothing like starting off spring time with some ribs. Our grill and outdoor cooking area are not quite ready for the season yet, so I did the ribs in the oven. Covered tightly in foil, they are steamed and come out very moist. 
   This is an easy beginner guide to good ribs without the grill. It's also a perfect back up for rainy days or when you run out of gas or charcoal.

Baby Back Ribs
1 slab baby back ribs
2 T. (more or less) dry rub*
kosher salt
cracked black pepper
BBQ sauce of choice
1/2 cup beer or cola

Preheat oven to 350. Spray coat a 13x9x2.

Seasoned ribs.

Remove silver skin from underside of ribs. Cut ribs in half to fit pan.

Sprinkle both sides of ribs with dry rub and salt and pepper. Place in baking dish and pour cola into bottom of pan. Cover with foil. Bake 1-1/4 hours.

Remove foil, flip ribs to underside up. Coat in BBQ sauce and return to oven for 15 minutes uncovered. Remove from oven, flip ribs and coat top with sauce and bake 15 minutes more. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing into servings.

Serves 3-4.

*Mix together the brown sugar, dry mustard, paprika, cumin, black pepper and garlic salt.

Note - last half an hour with sauce can be done over medium heat on grill.
